Design Thinking Methods for Engagement
The Design Thinking Methods for Engagement course explores and practiced a range of creative methods that can be used to bring people together to better understand and address complex issues, and to have fun doing so.
Students learn about the concept of design thinking, a human-centred, systems-based approach that invites them to step back and redefine challenges and approaches in fresh ways. The course focuses on adaptable facilitation frameworks that can help us incorporate creative tools into our engagement strategies.
The course was developed by myself and Sarah Hay of the Vancouver Design Nerds and after an initial trial will now be taught through 2015 at the HiVE.
